. . . but frankly, I don't see a lot of difference in the Republicans and the Democrats. It seems they both take us to the same place, just at different speeds. Socialized medicine is a good example. A few years ago, Hillary was being crucified for suggesting it. Now, the Republicans are promoting it. Yeah, with a slightly different slant, but just another form of socialism which ultimately takes us down the same path of tyranny and loss of freedom.

I have forever opposed the line item veto as well as the balanced budget amendment. The main reason I oppose these is because we don't need them. They are already safeguarded in the Constitution. The problem is that we don't have leaders who give a rat's behind about the Constitution, or as Bush is alleged to have said, the "g**da**ed piece of paper".

But that aside, the problem with things like the line item veto, or the Patriot Act or any other similar legislation is that it puts power in places where it shouldn't be. Sure, if King Benjamin were the president, we could live under a monarchy and be fine. But when Noah gets elected, everyone runs for cover. A law might be fine in the hands of a good man, but, unfortunately, commanders change every few years. I think the Patriot Act is evil, no matter how you slice it. Bush might be using it conservatively, but that doesn't make me feel any better about it. How will it be when Hillary is president?
